Global Solar Energy, a manufacturer of copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells, has announced the full operation of the world's largest CIGS solar electric array - a 750 kW system located at the company's manufacturing facility in Tucson.

The system was financed and is owned and operated by MMA Renewable Ventures LLC, a subsidiary of Municipal Mortgage & Equity LLC. SOLON Corp., a subsidiary of SOLON AG, produced and installed the PV modules and designed the array.

Covering 310,000 square feet at Global Solar's manufacturing plant, the system features a ground-mounted solar array that uses 6,600 SOLON solar modules incorporating CIGS thin-film solar cells.
